Anyone got UPNP working?
Title says it all. I'm wondering if anyone has managed to get a port-forward allocated to the router dynamically using UPNP? If so, what software was it using?
(Yes, I know, most people have it switched off!)

Interesting - thanks. Which ports does the router show as having opened?

I'd also add that Windows Live Messenger basic text messaging doesn't use upnp. It's the more interesting stuff like file sharing that needs it so I'm wondering if anniebryon is using the text messaging only.

anniebryon cancelled the sky package some time ago - so there is no connection with sky involved via the modem bit. i don't know if the router has been flashed for use with another isp though. anyway as you say the example is not relevant anyway

I am using my sky router with Upnp without any problems. Infact the only problems I have had were in the 2nd half of my 10day stabliation peroid (where I was getting vonstant disconnections). Sky downgraded my line to 10mb and once everything stabled out they then put it back up to 16mb(thou i dont seem to get the full 16mb(fingers crossed & touching wood..)
I'm using address reservation & Upnp woth no probs so it can't be broken as some were shouting about....
Hope that helps a bit

I have given up with the router and I am now using an Speedtouch 585v6, UPNP works as it should.
Seems to have better control over line noise than the Sky router aswell. My line at night was dipping to around 5.5db but the speedtouch is holding around the 8 mark.

@Tazzmann and boab2791: you'll excuse my cynicism, but I think plenty of people have said upnp works on sky, meaning that they have switched it on and sky still connects ok! What I'm interested in is the upnp functionality itself, not whether it breaks the connection to sky or wireless. So, if you believe it is working, can you please let me know which application is registering port forwarding automatically and which ports it has registered?
